    reconfiguring squid as transparent

    just a quickie

    If I reconfigure squid/nix to be a transparent proxy, will the people already connecting to the specific proxy address still work?

    thx

    The proxy server could have (from DHCP?) a list of machines and their assigned IP addresses, and know (from Active Directory?) which user was currently logged on to each machine, then it could tell what each user was doing.
